With so many of us spending more time at home than ever, having dedicated spaces for entertainment and recreation is a must! Whether you’re hosting a small gathering with friends or just looking for a way to keep the family busy, blending indoor and outdoor living with specialty rooms is the solution you’ve been looking for. But, how do you maximize your entertainment spaces to get the most bang for your buck? By combining them, of course!

Our clients have started creating the ultimate entertainment space using a combination of rooms that adjoin their outdoor space. Each room connects with one another, so they can be easily accessed by guests and family members. Wondering what kind of rooms make the most sense in this combo? You’re in luck! We’ve compiled a list of some specialty spaces to incorporate into your new custom home’s entertainment and recreation plans. Scroll below to get the details.

Game Room

The game room is the hub of this combination space. It’s what connects the other rooms and outdoor space, creating the main gathering area when hanging out at home. Fill it with old school classics like pool, darts, and foosball, or mix and match with some new favorites. Either way, a well-stocked game room will provide hours of fun for everyone to enjoy.

Media Room

Right off the game room is a media room, perfect for watching movies, your favorite TV series, or even the big game! The ability to close the doors offers a more intimate home theater environment, while extra touches like stadium seating, a projector screen, and a snack bar can really elevate the experience.

Bourbon Room

Wine cellars and tasting rooms are definitely popular in luxury homes, but there’s a new rising star on the scene — the bourbon room! This fun take on a home bar is a great way to create a place for adults to drink apart from the children. For a unique twist on this specialty room, consider giving it a classic speakeasy vibe. Think dark and moody finishes, lush furnishings, and a secret entrance like a door that blends into the exterior wall paneling.

Transitional Style Home

Outdoor Pool and Spa

The big wide open space of the game room opens to the outdoor area, and ideally, a pool and spa! Incorporate oversized windows and sliding or bi-fold glass doors to blend the two spaces together and make it easy to pass from one area to another.
